Smashwords book reviews by Robin Bell

  • Coral Sea Affair on Feb. 17, 2013

    A fun read that I enjoyed. Some reviewers had criticism of the English and sentence structure etc., I suggest you overlook this, relax and escape into the world of Ben Hood for a few hours.
  • Death on a Foggy Spring Portage on March 31, 2013

    This is a fun read with some nice twists and turns. Saying much more will spoil the plot. It is written in a light hearted and amusing manner.
  • Daddy's Poker Game on May 11, 2013
    (no rating)
    Badly written horrible story of misplaced trust. Actually a turn off.
  • A Lady Undone: The Pirate's Captive on June 04, 2013
    (no rating)
    I did not find this particularly riveting. I does not make me want to read the sequel. The plot is OK but the writing is not particularly good
  • The Maine Event on Oct. 24, 2013

    I enjoyed this story, I liked the way it gathered pace. As Jay Patterson said the tenses got a bit mixed up in places and that was a little distracting.
  • Early Birds on Aug. 31, 2014

    I agree with Jay Patterson that the plot and ideas are good and fresh and in that the mixing of past and present tenses is a major problem. I felt the whole book could do with fleshing out of both the characters and the plot.
  • Wilbert E. Hornbeck's Fantastic Adventure on Nov. 09, 2017

    . I agree with FlemSnopes gripes, I suggest you overlook them and enjoy a fun and entertaining story.
  • Madeline's Brooch - An Erotic Adventure on Nov. 09, 2017

    A rather novel idea and great fun to read.
  • The Pleasure Contracts-Contract #1: Temptation on Jan. 11, 2018

    An interesting idea for a story and then a series and a very titillating read. It starts off quite believable however some of the sex ,get well into the realms of fantasy towards the end. The character interactions are describe quite sensitively The main character.Rory, goes too rapidly from being a shy teenager to a domineering sex machine. It suffers from poor proof reading and at times confusing descriptions of the scenes. It does not make me wish to read more of the series.
  • Best On Board: A Mile-High Virgin Fantasy on Feb. 07, 2018

    An amusing, well written story of the geek getting the girl. When do we get to know what happened in the bar?
  • Erotica: A Strange Desire: 12 Erotic Short Stories on May 16, 2018

    Not well written, lots of proof reading errors and rather banal
  • Slipping In on June 06, 2018

  • The Alien Always Rings Twice on Aug. 20, 2018

    Well written, funny and erotic
  • Slave of the Aristocracy: Book One – On the Auction Block on Aug. 29, 2018

  • My Favorite . . . Martian? on Aug. 29, 2018

    A fun and imaginative piece which is well written.

    This is a very well written story with a good plot. It is a good read.
  • Skin and Blond on Feb. 24, 2019

    Miss Chambers has produced a pair of interesting characters in Ivy Stern (the heroine) and Miles Pike, (the ex boyfriend, police man) both of whom come to life more and more as the book progresses. The story in intriguing with a fitting climax. A well crafted book.

    An excellent short story, I fully agree with FlemSnopes review.
  • Jane's Farewell on March 05, 2019

    An enjoyable read that stirs some emotion and is good English.
  • Baiting & Fishing on March 11, 2019

    A well written story though to my surprise I realised the esential parts of the ending, I don't know how. I found the development of the love affair too long , but that is a personal opinion.

    A well written story which does not take itself too seriously and has some lighthearted moments.

    Thia is an enjoyable collection of varied stories

    (no rating)

    Well written and fun to read.
  • The Lamplighter's Love on Sep. 03, 2019

    Romance is not my usual fare, I downloaded this because of the steampunk label, having said that I enjoyed this well written story.

    This is a well written, well thought out story, well worth reading.
  • Rose and the Alien on Sep. 28, 2019

    An amusing tale, though not particularly well written.
  • A Maid's Tail: The Making of a Catgirl Maid on Oct. 21, 2019

    A fun read. While reading it the start seemed a bit tedious, however having finished it I think the "tedious " start is ok.
  • Sex Diary of a Dog: The Boss on Nov. 08, 2019
    (no rating)
    I don't like leaving negative reviews , but this is not worth the space if takes up on the web. ( In old fashioned terms " the paper it is written on" )
  • Iron Dogs and Caesar's Ruby on Nov. 08, 2019

    A good yarn, well written. It took me a little while to get into the story but once there I enjoyed it . I found some of the scenes a little long and tedious and think making them shorter would have increased the pace of the book and improved it . It is well worth reading
  • The Seal Wife: an erotic fairy tale on Nov. 20, 2019

    A very well written and thoroughly enjoyable story.
  • Sex Diary of a Dog: Chow 3 on Nov. 21, 2019

    The standard of writing is not what I would have expected from "well-educated man and respected clinical psychologist" I will not be reading any more of his work.

    Well written fun story.

    A well written. Arousing story of a magical evening.

    This is a nicely written fun story.
  • After the Fire on Dec. 27, 2019

    A well written story. However it simply did not float my boat. I think the emphasis on the insurance and financial side did not interest me.
  • Lady Abigail and the Morose Magician on Dec. 28, 2019

    An amusing and very well written story.
  • Gears of a Mad God: A Steampunk Lovecraft Adventure on Jan. 21, 2020

    A fun read with a likable heroine. I didn't notice any typos so either they are fixed or I was too engrossed in the story to notice them.
  • Gaia's Brood on Jan. 28, 2020

    This is a well written tale that carries the reader along and is hard to work out where it is going. I was thrown a few times by grammatical errors that a second round of proof reading would have sorted.
  • Sexy Little Cheerleaders: #1 Practice Makes Perfect on Feb. 02, 2020

    The ideas in the story are OK but the standard of writing does not entice me to read anything more by Hannah Hale
  • Holidays in the Sun on Feb. 10, 2020

    Limey Lady might hail from Bronte Country but her writing is nowhere near as good as Charlottte's , I gave up on this about 3 /4 of the way through it.
  • The Watchmaker's Daughter on Feb. 20, 2020

    This is fun story, that is well written and carries the reader along nicely.
  • LaMisha on Feb. 20, 2020

    No real character build up, below average writing.
  • The Manse on Feb. 22, 2020

    I thought the writing rather stark, I think it needs some "feeling" in the amorous sections.
  • Black as Night on Feb. 24, 2020

    An enjoyable twist to the fairy tale and well written. I would like to read the sequel, I suppose Miss/Mrs Wilde graduated and other things took over.
  • Warming Stories Volume Three on Feb. 25, 2020

    Once again Mrs. Debout has produced an anthology of well written very varied stories that are thoroughly enjoyable. (review of free book)
  • Healing a Wounded Warrior, Book 1: The Secret Program on Feb. 26, 2020

    ZVM's review sounds like sour grapes to me. I don't have a problem with the long lead in, it paints the mental state of the main character. Overall I thought it is well written story.
  • I'm So Drunk Right Now... on Feb. 28, 2020

    Unlike Mr. Parsons I don't think this is an outstanding story or particularly well written.
  • Junkyard (a Fractured Stars adventure) on Feb. 29, 2020

    Miss/Mrs Buroker has again produced an entertaining story. A heroine with Asperger's syndrome, an android who is a dandy and of all things a hunt for stolen maple syrup. I really enjoyed it.
  • Through His Stomach... on March 07, 2020

    An enjoyable short story, with a recipe at the end.
  • Friends on March 08, 2020

    In my view this is not a particularly well written book. I gave up with it about halfway through.
  • The Mirror. Episode1: The Kitty Cooper Diaries on March 14, 2020

    This is a well written enjoyable story,
  • Trapped in Amber on March 14, 2020

    This is a good read, with a nice twist.
  • The Woman. on March 14, 2020

    An excellent story, with lots of twists and turns. To quote Mr Adams in his review "a worthy read from a very talented author, I fully recommend it to any fan of mystery and crime."
  • A Midwinter Night's Dream: A Christmas Novella on March 19, 2020

    This is a well written story, with a nice turn in the end. Don't skip to the end, enjoy the surprise
  • Reunion: An Erotic Lesbian Love Story on March 20, 2020

    A very well tastefully written sexy love story. Please write some more stories Eva
  • Skyjackers - Episode 1: A Proper Nuisance on April 01, 2020

    A well written humorous book, itnis an enjoyable story
  • The Lady in White ~ Victorian Romance and Erotica on April 04, 2020

    Nothing like Wilkie Collins novel The Woman in White but still a good read.
  • Dear Diary on April 08, 2020

    An intresting short story, with some insight into the characters.
  • Resident Fear on April 08, 2020

    At the tenth murder, about half way through the the story, this book lost its plausabilty and I stopped reading it. Up to that point I found it a complicated plot written in a confusing style.
  • Cindy Eller: 50 Shades of Fairy Tales on April 08, 2020

    A fun Cinderella story
  • The Red Kite Killings on April 08, 2020

    This is a well written story with a good plot, but written in a confusing style. Although tagged as erotica I do not think it particularly erotic. Thinking about the plot after finishing the book (Is that a sign of a good book?) there are a couple of aspects that don't fit together if these occur to you I suggest you ignore them and enjoy the story. I have a warning though, it has some rather weird gory details in places
  • The Minstrel on April 10, 2020

    This is a well written story that is hard to put down.
  • Pebbleton-On-Edge on April 24, 2020

    A very enjoyable murder mystery.
  • Star Nomad (Fallen Empire, Book 1) on May 09, 2020

    Miss/Mrs Buroker has given us another fast paced fun book that is well written. Thank you.
  • The Viatic of Thaddeus Moon on May 09, 2020

    I will second Nila Brown's comments.
  • Warrior Mage (Chains of Honor, Book 1) on June 14, 2020

    A thoroughly enjoyable story that is easy to get wrapped up in.
  • Free-Wrench on July 02, 2020

    An excellent story, I do not agree with Shelby Suderman's complaint, I see nothing wrong with dialog to describe feeling, it brings the characters to life.
  • Mud and Brass on July 03, 2020

    This is a well written interesting short story
  • The $20 Note (Contained within Follow The Money: A Tale of Tales) on Aug. 11, 2020

    Stopped reading at chapter 3 after "I I captain" not "aye aye captain" and sheik not chic.
  • Dragon Storm (Heritage of Power Book 1) on Sep. 14, 2020

    This book is fun to read and we'll written. It is fast paced and hard to put to one side and do your chores.
  • Zoe on Sep. 19, 2020

    This is a well written slightly quirky short story. I will find some more by Tes MacKenzie.
  • A Taste of the Zannaverse: The Episode 1s!!! (Revised and Reposted) on Sep. 27, 2020

    This does not make me want to read anything else by Zanna Reese
